Tight quarters, but really amazing tour. Headset recorded tour guide if you so prefer. Interesting tidbits posted along the way to help you with the history of the sub.

Cost $12, but worth it. Fun being able to explore a real submarine.if you get a later time slot for the Arizona, do this because it is close by and doesn't take too long.

I don't think so. I recall waiting for the Arizona film to start and then going out to the site but I think for the submarine you just go whenever.
